I had an incredible opportunity to stay overnight in the Pilgrims Lodge and I had the most amazing experiences that I could hardly imagine. I was visiting Kaohsiung, Taiwan, and I was asked if I wanted to spend the night at the monastery but I had no idea what to expect.
I was met by my guide ( a nun of 30+ years) who was most incredible as a guide and mentor for my short time here. She invited me to dawn chanting and I was able to participate (nervously) and witness first hand the dedication of the nuns, monks and pilgrims.
Breakfast in the Great Hall was an incredible opportunity to see how others live, rules and routines explained in detail by my mentor.
If you get the chance also visit the Buddha Memorial Center, a wonderful blend of tradition and modern technology.
